Prizes & Incentives
Scouts who sell at least $2,500 (online, face-to-face, or combination) in any calendar year will have 6% of their Qualified Product Sales count towards their own Trail's End Scholarship*. Once enrolled, 6% of their sales each year will go towards the scholarship. Reporting of sales is not automatic, and forms must be submitted to Trail's End each year following the guidelines below. Scouts only have to hit the $2,500 minimum one time, and don't forget online sales count!
BONUS: Every year, the Top 5 Scouts in each region (Northeast, South, Central, West) will receive an additional 6% of their Qualified Product Sales credited towards their scholarship, up to the $1,000 annual maximum.
Proceeds from the Trail's End Scholarship are taxable. If a Scout earns more than $600**, Trail's End will send a 1099 to the Scout for the year in which the payout was made. Consult with your tax preparer to learn how this may affect you. Even with a tax liability, the net proceeds from the program provide a positive benefit to participating Scouts.
*Calendar year is January 1 to December 31.
